spent a few days in Dornoch this week .. on my first visit to The Eagle Hotel, I was advised that the waiting time for food was up to one hour .. so asked if I could book a table for the following night. The refurb'ed lounge and restaurant is pleasantly relaxing, the food is nicely presented and reasonably priced... More

Stayed at this hotel for a night with work, was greeted by a very welcoming receptionist who set the standard for very high level of professionalism from all at the hotel. Rooms were very comfortable despite being very warm nothing that opening a window couldn't solve. Food was very nice and well priced. I would certainly use it again for... More

We were greeted in a very brusque and offhand manner by an older waitress who rudely tried to move us from our seats but did eventually relent when advised by one of her younger colleagues. The choice of food was limited to fast food style dishes which when it came was well served by a polite and helpful young waitress... More

Good beer and the young bar staff were very friendly and helpful. The older lady was downright rude! The food was frozen food reheated, the burger was bland and the double peperoni pizza which was ordered to have extra pepperoni had only 9 pieces, when this was queried a bowl of uncooked pepperoni was brought out

Visited Dornoch at Easter and was persuaded to visit the newly refurbished Eagle for an evening meal. The renovations looked great and the staff and food made for an enjoyable evening. On visiting Dornoch again in June, I decided to take the whole family there for lunch on Tues 5th June. Although there were very few diners, the starters took... More

we were staying in Dornoch for a week and decided to visit the Eagle Hotel, we had been here 2 years ago and thought it was really good. Service was very slow. My daughter's gammon steak was quiet tough, my husbands chilli and rice had some pieces of spaggetti in it. My son in laws pizza had the wrong topping... More

We had lunch here three years ago, and were very disappointed, both by the service and the food, so we have shunned it since then. But this month we heard that it had greatly improved, so we decided to give it another try. Clean, welcoming and cheerful, we were not disappointed. The food was just what we wanted - unpretentious... More

Myself and my wife visited the Eagle at Easter (about a week after reopening after an extensive refurb). The first impression was very good. The new decor is very stylish and the bar is more welcoming than before.I'm afraid the service lets the side down. Some of the staff didn't look interested, and one of the girls was chewing gum,...

Hi, and thanks for your review. We always welcome feedback, good or bad, and especially welcome constructive feedback such as this. As previous reviews would suggest, we recently reopened after some fairly major refurbishment works, and I'm glad you agree that the product looks good. We had some initial issues with music and TV systems not working which have now... More
